$100 IN FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE FOR THE INSTALLATION OF A SMART THERMOSTAT
Opting for a smart thermostat for your home will help you optimize your energy use throughout the day and night. Given that heating alone accounts for 64% of the average Quebec household’s energy consumption1, Gazifère wants to give you $100 in financial assistance when you purchase and install a smart thermostat to replace your old one.
WHY A SMART THERMOSTAT?
Smart thermostats do not have a pre-determined timetable like programmable thermostats do, but instead adapt and learn the habits and preferences of the home’s occupants so that it can modulate the activation of the heating or air conditioning system appropriately. Always on the alert and extremely flexible, smart thermostats can detect and take advantage of every opportunity to save energy. For your comfort and peace of mind, a smart thermostat connected to a Wi-Fi network can be controlled remotely through a mobile app.
